The East Georgia Cancer Coalition’s annual Miles for Moms 5K Run/Walk provides the community with an opportunity to recognize our mothers who bravely face cancer whether they are previvors, in treatment, survivors or have passed. The race is also an opportunity to honor the families who journeyed with their loved ones through doctor’s appointments, treatments and all the changes cancer brings.
Miles for Moms recognizes those who have faced all cancer types because the East Georgia Cancer Coalition does not limit its services or focus to one type of cancer. We are a resource for all cancer types. Immediately following the race we host a health expo in an effort to increase awareness of cancer awareness and screenings. The expo features health related organizations who provide screenings not limited to cancer and vendor tables from our business related supporters in the community as well as children’s activities.
Proceeds from the event go towards the program costs of prevention, education and screening related to cancer as well as ensuring we can continue to bring the latest cancer related information to the residents of our 29 county region.
